A Summerland golfer has signed with a university golf program in Wisconsin.

Sydney Clement, a graduate of Summerland Secondary School, is joining the women’s golf program at Cardinal Stritch University.

Coach Tim Eckberg said Clement is the first-ever recruit for the women’s golf program at Stritch.

“I’m excited to sign Sydney to our program for next year,” Eckberg said.

“She has immense talent that I believe will allow her to be at the head of the class for her four years here. Add to that the fact that she’s a very easy-going person with a great deal of drive and that’s the type of player that can help our program grow in the right direction.”

Clement, a 5-foot-11 golfer, comes to the Wolves after competing for Summerland Secondary School.

During her time there she set the Summerland Golf and Country Club course record by shooting a minus-2.

She was also the low finisher for her team in each of the tournaments the program competed in.

During her high school career, Clement made the 2009 Zone 2 British Columbia Summer Games team, finishing ninth.

She also helped guide her high school program to a 13th place finish in her Grade 11 year.

Clement and the Wolves will begin play in the fall of 2013 for Stritch in its inaugural golf season.
